Believe It or Not, The Cardinals and Cubs have Never Met in the Postseason (26 Photos)

Today is a historic day in baseball. As hard as it is to believe, the Cardinals and Cubs have played 2,241 games and have never before squared off in the playoffs.

Long gone are the days of Brock, Gibson and Cepeda versus Williams, Banks and Santo. Now we have Carpenter, Molina and Holliday versus Rizzo, Bryant and Arrieta. There’s a fire between these two teams that we haven’t seen in a long time. And that’s good for baseball.

As a life-long Cardinals fan living in the Chicago area, today’s meeting of the Cardinal and Cubs in the playoffs has special meaning for me. This used to be a fierce rivalry. You Red Sox and Yankees fans know what I’m talking about. I remember attending a game when I was 8 or 9 at Wrigley with my Cub fan cousin and getting into a fist-fight in the stands arguing over whether Lou Brock or Billy Williams was a better player. But for a long time, the fire of this rivalry has mellowed as the ineptitude of the former Cubs front office and ownership handcuffed them with massive contracts for players past their prime.

Welcome back Cubs. It’s been way to long. But don’t forget… The curse still lives…
